Sweet Marinated Strawberries with Vanilla Overnight Oats

Sweet Marinated Strawberries with Vanilla Overnight Oats | A Healthy Vegan Breakfast!

I remember when I was a kid my grandmother had her own little veggie garden.

It had everything from kale, to lettuce, any and all herbs, passionfruit, and most importantly, strawberries. Sometimes in the mornings I’d go peek at the bunnies who had come to pillage it all. It was super idyllic, and super fun to watch as kid. I, of course, refused to eat any of the leafy greens, but you didn’t have to tell me twice to tuck into a bowl of freshly picked strawberries, their red juiciness running down my chin. Bliss.

That’s what I was going for with these Sweet Marinated Strawberries with Vanilla Overnight Oats, that feeling of loving life as as you tuck into something you love – and nothing gets me out of bed as quickly as a promise of breakfast.

Not only does breakfast make me happy, but also the fact that spring is finally here, and most importantly it’s also spring strawberry season!

Sure, you can probably get them year-round if you live near a big supermarket, but now is the season where they’re at the juiciest and ripest and reddest. Mmmnm just thinking about them makes my mouth water, so I’ve teamed up with Seasonal Berries to bring you this Sweet Marinated Strawberries with Vanilla Overnight Oats recipe to celebrate these not-so-humble berries. Tuck in!
